Please fix and replace this Catalyst™ Version 13.12 for Windows XP 32bit (Driver Packaging Version 9.00.300.1.1-131219a-167026E-ATI, Catalyst™ Control Center Version 2013.1220.658.12383, 2D Driver Version 6.14.10.7280, Direct3D Version 6.14.10.0963, OpenGL Version 6.14.10.11954) with a WHQL version, because this driver works like an unstable beta version (random PC restart or monitor OFF, flickering, random game crashing - VALVE CS:GO) - My graphic card is "ATI Sapphire 7550 Ultimate" and worked perfect with the drivers of Catalyst™ Version 13.9 WHQL

I doubt any time will be wasted on drivers for XP.

Current Catalyst 13.12 (non WHQL) for 32 bit Windows XP doesn't even recognize SAPPHIRE DUAL-X R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 OC WITH BOOST, although it's supposed to work with it.

Catalyst 13.9 WHQL works fine on the same card, though.

No it won't stop working. Every hacker in the world will target you knowing there will be no patches. Regardless, nobody is going to develope drivers for a obsolete OS. How many drivers do you find for Windows 98 ?

Ok...then you will need to modify the drivers to work on XP. Here is how.

That's a nice thing, just take a look at windows 2000. A few months after its support ended software developers started compiling programs with a newer version number. If you try to run them, you get a message that it's not a valid win32 executable.

Put win2k on a virtual machine and try it. No browser, no Skype, no Steam. Nothing will run. Nothing is a valid win32 executable... That's what will happen to XP as well. You know, Visual Studio 2012 and 2013 don't compile for XP. People will leave VS 2010 pretty soon. Your system will work, won't be targeted as it's offline, but you won't be able to run any recent software.

I'm familiar with all that (a non valid win32 executable)... I'm keeping Windows XP alive for (old) programs and games that run best under this OS.
